We are set in an idyllic rural location. From the roof terrace olive trees extend in all directions for as far as the eye can see, beyond that there is a 180 degree view of the sea. Apart from the silhouette of Ostuni on the horizon there is very little man made intrusion to spoil the tranquillity. Having said that, we are an easy 30 minutes drive away from the nearest airport and have very good road and rail links.

The last 400 metres approach to The Proud Garden is via an untarmacked dirt track. It is perfectly passable with a normal car as long as you drive slowly. Think of it as a barrier to the outside world. We recommend against renting any form of low sitting sports car.

 


 

Flights

We recommend flying to Brindisi airport. It’s an easy 30 minute drive to The Proud Garden and in addition it’s modern, small and generally easy and quick to navigate. Bari airport is your second choice its larger and offers more choice flights (still an easy drive but its a little further away approximately an hour).

Brindisi – approximately 30 minutes drive

from London Stansted – Ryanair operate direct flights year round
from Manchester – Ryanair operate direct flights in the summer
from London Gatwick – Easyjet operate direct flights in the summer
from London Heathrow – British Airways operate direct flights in the summer
from London City Airport – Alitalia operate flights year round with an easy connection in Milan

The flying time from London is just short of 3 hours.

Despite what you may have heard about the ‘low cost’ airlines we know from personal experience that the service is reliable, punctual and offers particularly good value for money, especially if booked in advance. OK the tea isn’t great, but just think of all that fantastic coffee you can have when you get here. Both Ryanair and EasyJet now offer assigned seating and there’s also the option to choose a premium seat and or take priority boarding which removes the need for any lengthy queuing at the boarding gate.

There are also direct flights to Brindisi from Amsterdam, Barcelona, Basel, Brussels, Cologne, Dusseldorf, Eindhoven, Frankfurt, Geneva, Madrid, Nuremberg, Paris, Seville, Stuttgart, Valencia and Zurich

Bari – approximately 1 hour drive

from London Stansted – Ryanair operate direct flights year round

If you are flying from further afield then there are a number of connecting flights both to Brindisi and Bari available via the major Italian airport hubs of Milan and Rome.

Getting to The Proud Garden

To get the most out of your stay in the area we strongly recommend hiring a car for your stay at The Proud Garden. Whilst we are only approximately 2.5 miles from the local town and just a little further to the beach, public transport here is limited and infrequent.

If you really don’t want to hire a car then we arrange for a car to collect you or help you with taking the train from either Brindisi or Bari airports.
